WELCOME HOME, TIGERS!

Iowa Wesleyan University

After successfully navigating in-person classes during this unprecedented year, Iowa Wesleyan has announced it is planning for a full in-person student experience for the 2021-22 academic year.  Iowa Wesleyan anticipates a full return to in-person classes and activities, including residential life, athletics, arts, and other extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities.  We are grateful to our students, faculty, and staff, who navigated a difficult year with patience, grace, and creativity.  Go Tigers!    

We understand that the past few months have been difficult, but we’re excited to announce that we’ll be fully re-opening for the Fall 2021 semester!

What does this mean for you?

  • We will be returning to a standard academic calendar. All classes will return to in-person offerings, and we will have our fall and spring semester breaks.
  • More on-campus activities.  There will be more opportunities for students to participate in intramurals as well as other club and student-led activities.

We’re excited to be able to welcome you back!  While we may not be returning to a pre-Covid normal, we are delighted to be able to grow and develop from this experience.

Check back often for updates!

There will not be pre-COVID normal, but classrooms will return to what we are coining our “next to normal.”  The plan is that courses will return to face-to-face options on campus, and room size restrictions will be removed.  Each class will have an eCompanion online in the Learning Management System (LMS) that will have supplemental learning opportunities, and it will be accessible via an “app” on your smartphone.  Students will be engaged in a whole new way, including textbooks on the LMS, videos, and other engagement tools, including online tutoring options. There will be no options for distance learning moving forward, and students needing to study away would need to enroll in IW Online. 

We expect to have our campus facilities available to the public to attend events and for rental space opportunities.  Please contact Traci Bender at traci.bender@iw.edu for availability and updated policies.
